MeKo presents innovations at COMPAMED/MEDICA 2015

RESOLOY® - The resorbable magnesium alloy for stents

RESOLOY® - The new magnesium resorbable alloy for stents

MeKo presents new techniques and materials at Compamed / Medica in Düsseldorf – from 16th to 19th of November 2015 in hall 8a, stand 8AN15.

For about 25 years MeKo manufactures medical components with tight tolerances and perfect surface quality. Customers receive an added value thanks to many self-developed innovations – like the magnesium resorbable alloy RESOLOY®.

With RESOLOY® MeKo presents a bioresorbable magnesium alloy for stents and therefore an alternative to polymers. In comparison to PLLA, it has about 3 times higher strength, thinner struts, a higher radial force and does not require stepped inflation. The degradation time of RESOLOY® can be adjusted by coatings. It has a proven biocompatibility, no shelf life and no temperature issues.

With optimized production procedures MeKo realizes laser cuts and holes down to 10 µm with an accuracy of ± 5 µm. Medical products such as stents can be manufactured for various types of material - apart from stainless steel and Nitinol, they can also be made of bioresorbable materials like magnesium and polymers. The components are post-processed with special developed finishing processes like electropolishing, annealing, cleaning and final inspection.
